Emily & Meghan picked up KINDRED, a female black lab 17 week old transfer. She was born on April 14, 2017 to Farmer/Dynasty! 

DAYLA is on the August recall and will be returning to San Rafael to begin breeder evals on August 13th. Congratulations to Emily & Meghan for raising another awesome puppy!

We welcomed raisers Mason and Jordan on June 1, 2017! Both are from Lemoore FFA and will attend Fresno State next year as Freshmen. Mason is raising JUDO, a male black lab, and Jordan is raising GRETZKY, a male yellow lab.







Puppies come to their puppy raisers between 8-10 weeks old and stay with them until they are approx. 16 months old at which point they are "recalled" to GDB for formal training.

In that time with their raiser, the puppy will learn to be comfortable in many different environments and are taught basic house manners and obedience.

Puppies accompany their raisers practically everywhere including work, school, stores, restaurants, public transportation, and more!
